Anybody EVER needing transmission service, you need only to go to Jim and Sons in Akron or Canton , you will never regret it!
Dean Stevens of Diamond Ohio
"Hi! My name is Dean Stevens, and I cant tell you how pleased I am with Jim and Sons Transmission! I have had my wifes Beetle to the dealer, the biggest and most well known transmission shop in the youngstown area, and twice to a foreign car shop in streetsboro! After 8 months of people telling us nothing was wrong( car slamming into gears up and downshifting) we got lucky and found jim and sons! No I did not need a new transmission like i was told by a vw guru, i just needed a valvebody in which was very reasonable! Jim and sons did their magic to our Bug and now it is perfect( no more banging and slamming) Anybody EVER needing transmission service, you need only to go to Jim and Sons in Akron or Canton , you will never regret it!"
I will be back and I will also share with everyone I know how happy I am I went there and trusted them with my car.
Jim Marsteller of Brimfield Ohio
"Just fantastic and caring customer service!! I researched Jim & Son's before I took my classic car there- after reading all the other reviews I know I made the right choice- I had the same excellent experience- from the phone call to make the appointment, thru the service to the pick up- all just excellent - HONEST RELIABLE IN AND OUT AS PROMISED with no extras- no up selling- just what the car needed and what I asked for- no surprises. Now the most honest shop I have ever been to in my 50+ years. If you are reading this and deciding whether to take your car here or elsewhere read what all the customers say. I will be back and I will also share with everyone I know how happy I am I went there and trusted them with my car."
It was nice to deal with a business that cares and makes the customer feel like they can ask questions.
Tom Pollock of Mogadore Ohio

Stephene Van Natta of Canton Ohio
"After diagnostics were done at my regular auto shop, I was told it was necessary for my Jeep to be serviced by a transmission shop. After calling me, they arranged everything. I was assured I would be pleased with Jim & Sons Transmission in North Canton. 'Wayne" called to explain there were several electronic issues in my transmission. Wayne called me 2 more times with updates and was very pleasant & knowledgeable. Repairs were made and my Jeep was ready to go the next day. Nobody likes to know their vehicle needs transmission work but this is definitely the place to go! Thank you Wayne & staff.e"
His shop is incredibly clean and his staff is great. I can not say enough about Jim, except that I would like to steal him and have him here in D.C.

Mary Manzari of Washington District of Columbia
"Once again, Jim has come to my rescue. I live in Washington, D.C., and whenever I am in Akron I have Jim service the transmission on my 2004 Honda Odyssey (200,000 miles). Whenever I have an issue or question about my transmission, I call Jim. Actually, I call Jim whenever I have a question regarding my van. ... I call him from the Honda service dealer as well ... Even though I am in D.C. he is always there, professional and ALWAYS helps me. I really trust him. In 2003, Jim rebuilt the transmission on my 1998 Grand Voyager. His shop is incredibly clean and his staff is great. I can not say enough about Jim, except that I would like to steal him and have him here in D.C."
I will say I am amazed at the accurate diagnostics along staying true to the estimates!
Carl Brown of Stow Ohio
"My 4 wheel drive hasn't worked in about 3 years. Finally having put the funds together to even think about getting it looked at, I sought out a garage. The important aspect was getting a garage to diagnose the problem correctly, I didn't want someone just throwing parts at it, hoping to fix the problem. Another garage recommended Jim & Sons. Dan diagnosed 2 different problems, with a cost factor for each. I will say I am amazed at the accurate diagnostics along staying true to the estimates! To further better the experience at Jim & Sons, the problems were fixed 2 days prior than expected. Although I only got to try out the 4 wheel drive in the snow for the last big snow we had, I'm impressed. Jim & Sons doesn't only fix transmissions, but axles & computer related problems as well. Thank you Dan & Amanda for keeping me updated with the expected return of my vehicle depending on availability of the parts you had to order. I was surprised they had rental vehicles at a reasonable rate. They even offered a ride back home after I dropped off my vehicle! I highly recommend Jim & Sons. "
Real people solving real problems!
Jason Smith of Stow Ohio
"Thanks everybody who put the extra effort in to getting my Dakota fixed up! These guys, Dan and Max in particular, put the time and care into working around my schedule and properly diagnosing the problem and keeping me posted with updates as they had them. Real people solving real problems!"
Though i didn't need any serious work, your honest estimate speaks volume about your company.
Anthony Lee of Akron Ohio
"Went to Jim and sons expecting a transmission rebuild in my F150. Turns out all I needed was a quart of transmission fluid! Though i didn't need any serious work, your honest estimate speaks volume about your company. Thanks"
THANKS GUYS for saving me another car payment and giving new life AND VALUE to my CRV!

Heath Katy & Nolan Taylor of Cuyahoga Falls Ohio
"Thank you for the resurrection of my Honda CRV. The transmission went out on it and after getting an estimate from another garage I had it brought into Jim & Sons. They towed the car, diagnosed the problem, gave me an estimate and even had it towed back to my house. At first we were going to just sell it as the cost was hard to swallow for a 2001 with 175K miles BUT with their estimate was a comment that the rest of the car was in very good shape and would last as long as the transmission. After deciding on the fix they towed it back to the shop - FREE OF CHARGE - and advised me of the updated estimate after then got into it. The fixed it in record time and even fixed a couple of other issues for the cost of the parts only. The car runs and handles like new. THANKS GUYS for saving me another car payment and giving new life AND VALUE to my CRV!"
Their pricing was MORE than reasonable. Hopefully I will not need their wonderful service on a routine basis but if I do, I will not hesitate to return to them.
Barb Knupp of Akron Ohio
"Normally when one hears the word "transmission" it is asscociated with the phrase "national debt"! This is certainly NOT the case with Jim and Sons. I found them to be very friendly, honest and accommodating in our dealing. Their pricing was MORE than reasonable. Hopefully I will not need their wonderful service on a routine basis but if I do, I will not hesitate to return to them. Thanks guys!!!"
